Let us welcome you to our Edinburgh cocktail bar and restaurant, and with it, our first in Scotland! Embroiled in witch hysteria centuries ago, this city’s historic obsession with the dark arts marked the Scottish Capital as an ideal destination for our dark world of theatre served.

Even more fittingly, situated a stone’s throw from Edinburgh Castle and the infamous Witches’ Well, you’ll find us ensconced on the fourth floor of St James Quarter, Edinburgh’s contemporary retail and lifestyle district. Enter our den of molecular mixology and let our creative cocktails and darkly delicious dining enchant you.
